Blouzouki is an international band led by the french songwriter Hugo Labattut. His songs are inspired by his travels around the world.
From blues to swing or acoustic french style, his songs are the combination of all his inspirations such as Tom Waits, Sanseverino, Serge Gainsbourg, Ry Cooder, The Doors, Iggy Pop…
The singer songwriter is inspired by blues music since his early days but his composition are filled with inspiration of his travels all around the world.
In 2007 he meets the guitarist Ersin Erçin (turkey) in Poland and it’s only 5 years later that he decides to come to visit him in Istanbul. The city full of musicians from all over the world allows him to meet the future members of his band. He will start playing some of his songs freshly written and some blues covers in the old bars of Istanbul. In march 2013, BLOUZouki becomes the official name of the band and they record their first album titled“on the way to Istanbul”.
Then the singer leaves Istanbul for about a year and comes back in 2015 with more new songs. The band is formed again and in March 2016 they record their 2nd album titled “Je Déménage” (I’m moving out) with 13 musicians.
In 2017, BLOUZouki is playing around Istanbul and recorded a new album "Hobos", more acoustic, more blues.
